If you don’t own an iPhone and you still want a gold-plated watch, LG has a solution for you. The company has announced a gold version of its LG Watch Urbane, and it will only cost you $1,200.
The LG Watch Urbane Luxe is a limited edition timepiece produced by LG and jeweler Reeds. The company will show off the timepiece at the IFA electronics show in Berlin.
The watches won’t ship until October and only 500 of the limited edition timepieces will be made.
Admittedly the Urbane is already one of the nicest looking Android watches on the market. Now you can add 23-karat gold plating and an alligator leather strap into the mix.
According to a statement given to TechCrunch, “each LG Watch Urbane Luxe is individually numbered and presented in a piano gloss lacquered case with a signed certificate of authenticity.”
Is an LG gold-plated watch worth $1,200. I’m willing to bet that 500 people will answer with a resounding yes.
